Currently Offered Outreach Programs
TOPICS FOR ANY OCCASION
Our most popular program! In this program, we will dive into the characteristics that define raptors and why they are important to our ecosystems. Audiences will discover the various types of birds of prey found all over the world, what it takes to care for a bird of prey, and learn how Nature's Educators is permitted to keep raptors. The audience will learn about their personal histories, anatomy, hunting strategies, and habitats.
We are able to do educational talks and host tables for Renaissance Festivals, Resorts, and other special events. If you are interested in having us out to do stage shows, host a tent/table, or do continous programming, please reach out! We are able to travel (including other states) and are flexible with scheduling events such as these. Keep in mind, we are an education program....not entertainment....we can do "edutainment!"
Creatures of the Night
Nocturnal and crepuscular animals have different features and behaviours to help them be active at night. For this popular program, we will learn about creatures that are active at night. We will bring an owl and a few other creepy-crawly critters to help show off their amazing adaptations!
Snakes are amazing creatures which many people fear. During this presentation, discover the ways to identify which snakes are venomous, learn what snakes eat, find out where they live, and how they find their prey. Visit with a variety of snakes and who knows, you may overcome your fear of these legless reptiles by the end of the program!
Colorado is a special place that has its own pride and identity. From the high forests of the Rocky Mountains to the open expanses of the Great Plains - it's our beautiful home that we share with amazing wildlife. In this program, learn what makes Colorado's habitats such a great place for some of our feathered, scaly, and slimy neighbors. Also, meet animal ambassadors that are true Colorado Natives!
Meet and Greet
During this program, children will meet 3 animal ambassadors (decided on by host and NE volunteers) and learn general information about them. Please note - this 30 min program will only be offered within an hour's drive of our location in Florence. Any further and we need to do at least 2 of them to help cover travel costs.
Available in both English and Spanish!
